Sunday Sermon and SO MUCH BETTER TODAY

15 Mar

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.” ~Oprah Winfrey

**************

Before I get to my Sunday Sermon, I just wanted to say thank you for all the well wishes and prayers for my brief yet debilitating second Moderna Vaccine Friday. Today, I’m back and feeling about 99% . Thank you Miss Cheryl for your prayers and communion intentions at Mass today. That was sweet.

Big difference from yesterday, right?

Today’s Gospel from John explains that God gave His Only Son to save mankind…

Gospel, John 3:14-21

16 For this is how God loved the world: he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.17 For God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.18 No one who believes in him will be judged; but whoever does not believe is judged already, because that person does not believe in the Name of God’s only Son.19 And the judgement is this: though the light has come into the world people have preferred darkness to the light because their deeds were evil.20 And indeed, everybody who does wrong hates the light and avoids it, to prevent his actions from being shown up;…

My take on it… God sacrificed His son to save us and show us the light of His love. Some choose evil and avoid the light of salvation. To me, it doesn’t mean going to church or pretending to be holy, it means leading a good life, choose the light and good, and show your faith through example.

I hadn’t ventured out the door since Friday, so today when I saw the sun shining and heard the birds chirping, I grabbed my lawn chair and sat smack dab in the middle of the driveway, face turned towards the sun.

Ah! Sunshine!

I’m very thankful for a beautiful day, feeling fine, and my awesome friends and family.
